Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 On Sales Now! [ Oct 17, 2016 ]
Exciting news boys and girls, the 310 strips of Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 have been collected into a fourth Quantum Vibe volume from Big Head Press and is on sale now from various online retailers.
Venus 23 is the story of life on a small backwater planet, 500 years after the invention of the Murphy Drive. "Zytemonde" is a well managed, orderly, and predictable world where all needs are provided for by powerful android rulers. But life is hardly paradise when managing resources also includes controlling every aspect of everyone's life. And despite best efforts by their android rulers, a slow decay of civil society is beginning to show; with growing black markets, supply shortages, and power outages becoming more common.
Yet, while the rot slowly breaks their world down, an unexpected question begins to be seen, asked on posters littered about the city and spray painted on walls: "Hu Iz Alyss Roaz?" Learn the answer to this question along with young Bolivar Eustace Clark ("Bok") and his friends, as they struggle to survive on a world designed to end all struggle.

The Transcript For This Page
Stone is in Nicole's hotel room, seated on the bed as she brings up Nicole's search history on the room Screen. The history shows a short list, which includes the names Claud Southend, The Lucky Duck Club, the Bully Goat Tavern, and Rando Greene.
Stone is in the Lucky Duck Club, talking to a bartender. She is showing an image of Nicole, but the bartender doesn't seem to recognize her.
Stone is in the Bully Goat Tavern. It's less crowded now, but there are still some patrons in the background. She's talking with the bartender, who does recognize Nicole's image.
One of the patrons, a rough-looking male, has walked up to Stone, shouting something while he angrily shoves her. Some of the other patrons look on with anticipation.
Stone effortlessly lifts the ruffian by his groin. His face reveals his agony. The other patrons are saucer-eyed.
Stone casually tosses the ruffian over her shoulder. The other patrons shy away.
In the Offworld Lounge, Stone scans the table where Nicole and Rando had been sitting with her visor.
As Stone walks down the street, she holds a palm alongside her face, indicating she is making a tel call.
Stone: So far I have two subjects, a journo and a publicist. I suspect our guy is the latter, but I'll be looking into both of them.
